|New Geneseo accounts have initial passwords that are expired - that is, our users must select a new password the first time they log into our services. Geneseo account holders who have not opted-in to MFA are required to change their password every 180 days.|
The easiest way for STUDENTS to change their Geneseo password is to click the link above or login to https://myworkaccount.microsoft.com/ and select Change Password from the tiles.
FACULTY and STAFF with domain-bound Windows and macOS computers should use their operating system's password changing option.

Existing account holders
New passwords must meet the following requirements:
If you are enrolled in MFA there are no complexity requirements but your password must be at least 10 characters long.
We also have turned on Azure AD weak password protection which checks your password against a list of "weak" passwords and rejects it if it matches. You can read more about that here.
Follow these instructions to ensure that your Mac will continue to access Geneseo's wireless network (eduroam).
Users who have not opted-in to MFA will still be required to reset their passwords every 180 days and will receive the following email message prior to expiration.
If you have not yet opted-in to MFA you may see password expiration warnings in other Geneseo services. A few examples are shown below.
